AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Masson examines the idea that 'nobody wants to be at the centre anymore, everyone claims marginal status'. She observes however, that 'each time we speak thus we betray unconsciously the knowledge that the centre is indeed there, within all of us; for if it was not, it would make no sense to talk of margins at all.' To illustrate her argument, Masson uses the Medieval and Postmodernist eras.
